ACFW Registration Opens Today!

It's SO exciting! ACFW, the writer's organization that has helped me become a published author hosts an annual conference in September every year. And today, registration is open to anyone who wishes to attend!

WHEN: Thursday-Sunday, September 20-23, 2007
WHERE: Dallas, Texas (Marriott Quorum)
WEB SITE: ACFW Conference Site

I will be serving again as part of the conference staff with my pal, Jeanne Leach, in the conference bookstore, so we're already registered. Today though, my fiance, Stuart, can register, which is doubly exciting. :) Of course, this year we'll be sharing a room as a married couple. That alone is going to make this conference better than the rest! Considering this conference is where he and I met, it's a special time for us. We'll get to celebrate an 'anniversary' of sorts. The president of the organization last year remarked, "We might have to change our name back to ACRW (American Christian Romance Writers), complete with a new slogan -- 'Join ACFW and find a future mate." LOL!

Anyway, I can't say enough about ACFW and the lasting benefits it brings to anyone pursuing the craft of writing fiction. Whether it be for a career or part-time work at home to supplement what you already have, this organization is the best one out there. It's been hailed as "the premier Christian fiction organization" with notoriety among the publishers rivaling RWA (Romance Writers of America), what could be considered the secular counterpart.

To help generate the excitement, several members of ACFW, are participating in a blog tour this month. You can read stories, anecdotes, experiences and much more.
